Canada ticks all the boxes when it comes to spectacular scenery, modern cities and a friendly welcome – in fact, there's no better place to spend an active break!
The country is a land of contrasts. Sharing a border with the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific Oceans, as well as the United States, Canada is the world's second-largest country – and a diverse destination that is well worth exploring. Whether you want to spend time in some of its spectacular national and provincial parks or prefer to get out on your bike and explore cities such as Vancouver, there's sure to be a Canada adventure holiday that is perfect for you.
Get out and about in Canada's national parks
From coast to coast, Canada's diverse national parks are well worth a visit – and booking adventure holidays with Grand American Adventures will ensure you make the most of your time in the great outdoors.
If you're keen to get up close and personal with the spectacular Rocky Mountains, why not consider one of our Canadian Rockies tours?
These adventures allow you to spend time in Yoho, Jasper and Banff National Parks – all of which offer spectacular scenic views across unspoiled wilderness. During your time in the parks, you may choose from a range of adventures. For example, you can hike a range of challenging trails, go white water rafting in Yoho National Park, rest your tired muscles in the incredible Banff Hot Springs or take a canoe trip down the Bow River.
You'll also be able to get a firsthand look at glaciers in the spectacular Icefields Parkway and take a photo of Mount Robson – one of Canada's tallest peaks. Depending on the time of year, you may also be able to spot some of Canada's famous wildlife – grizzly bears, deer, moose, elk, mountain goats and bighorn sheep are among the many creatures that call the Rockies home.
Lace up your hiking boots on a Canada walking holiday
If you can't wait to get hiking on your next break, a Canada walking holiday could be just the thing for you.
It's free to hike in Canada's national parks – and led by your trusted guide, you are sure to experience the best the Rockies have to offer.
More adventurous types may also want to take part in a guided glacier walk. There is a fee to explore the spectacular icefields, but you may find that the memories you make – and the incredible photos you take – make the experience worthwhile.
And when you're finished exploring Canada's awe-inspiring national parks by foot, end your tour in cosmopolitan Vancouver, where you can learn more about Inuit culture, explore the Pacific coast or simply kick back and relax with a locally-brewed beer.
